The iPad version of the Google Search app received a pretty big update today. It features a revamped UI that provides feedback the moment you begin to type. After tapping a result, the page with load in a a new slide-in pane so that you can continue to scroll through results while it loads. You can also check out snapshots of pages you’ve visited in the new carousel view.
Check out the video of Google Search for iPad in action below.
Once you pick a web page to visit, you’ll see the page load on a new, slide-in pane that will layer over the search results. You can slide the pane to the right to get back to your search results, and even keep scrolling through the results as your web page is loading. This allows you to go back and forth from results to web pages quickly to get the information you are looking for.
Often you may be looking to find something you have seen before again or are continuing research on a topic. But on a tablet, typing can be a challenge. That is why we have created a visual way to explore your search history. Swipe right to view snapshots of pages you’ve visited, stacked and organized by search term. You can also manage your search history from this new view.
- See search results and websites side-by-side to browse pages and results
- Get to the right answer faster with Instant Previews and Google Instant
- See images full-screen with image browsing
- New visual UI for search history
- Easy access to other Google apps
Google Search is available on the iPhone and iPad for Free.
